[Vienna without flourishes]
With all due respect to the Baroque, Historicism and Art Nouveau periods – Vienna’s architecture has a lot more to offer than the glamorous edifices from the monarchy era. The Modern Architecture Guide shows you impressive architecture without any flourishes. This could be the monumental Karl Marx Hof, which represents the time of Red Vienna after 1920 more than any other building, or the campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business from the 2010s, where world stars like Zaha Hadid have left their mark. Or would you prefer the architecture of the 1950s, like Karl Schwanzer’s Belvedere 21 and Roland Rainer’s impressive Stadthalle? Here you can also find curious churches, the fantastically skewed Hundertwasserhaus and insider tips like the Werkbund Estate. You’ve never seen Vienna’s architecture like this.
